"I'm forever going on about my time at Goldsmiths to my fellow producers – when we're in production, there's always a story, a reference, or a lesson that comes up.  The course was invaluable to me, it taught me a variety of skills that I use to this day.

The best thing about the course was the academia backed up with praxis, so we were able to use what we learnt and transpose into practical skills. I loved that we were able to delve into so many different aspects of the entertainment industry – it prepared me so well for the business that I'm in. The video library alone provided me with many wonderful hours of educating myself about film, and it was there that I started breaking down the components of editing and storytelling. I got to work with some fantastic people from many different walks of life and got to study with some amazing drama tutors, including John Ginman and Maria Shevtsova. I am so blessed to have spent my time studying here.

I've just finished post-production on a music film for Mediaeval Baebes, which I directed. Our latest feature film, Break Clause, has just been released on Amazon Prime and Vimeo on Demand. My other three productions, Dragonfly, #LostDogFilm, and UK18, are also available on various VOD Channels."
